I rock!

I rock!

Sunday night, BET aired Black Girls Rock, and it was so awesome!  It’s about time we see some positive, inspirational, motivational, strong images of black women in the media.  BET did this one right.  Working with Beverly Bond to give more exposure to the positivity her initiative exudes, this program did wonders for grown black girls and small black girls alike.  If you missed it, I encourage you to watch it, whether you’re a black girl or not.  You can catch it online at the link above.

So let’s spread some love on my page today.  Share with me why YOU rock!

Why do I rock?  I rock because I’m a risk taker.  I dream and then I go after them.  I rock because I’m a M.A.D. black woman–one who’s making a difference.  I’m a change maker.  I rock because even though I’m a rough and tough with my afro puffs at times, I’m versatile–I’m also a softspoken, sensitive southern belle who loves alliteration and all things vintage and frilly.  I rock because I know my style and I love myself for it.  I rock because I want to be an influence on those around me.  As Iyanla Vanzant said Sunday night, I rock because I have no other choice.

Here’s one of my fave parts of the show.

Why do you rock?  Tell me!

  2. I rock because I have people in my life that love me, encourage me, inspire me, and push me to rock! I rock because of my ancestors that paved the way so that I could rock it all the way out! I rock because I am comfortable in my skin, I know who I am, and can’t wait for all the blessings that God has in store for me!*rockstar hand*


  3. I rock:
    …because I know what I want, and am not willing to settle
    …because I am the only black female at my job
    …because I am serious about my career
    …because I know I’m beautiful, inside and out
    …because I have many more reasons why I rock

    P.S. I absolutely loved the “Four Women” performance!

I rock because I set a positive example for children everyday in my classroom. I rock because I mentor! I rock because in a year I’ll have my doctorate. I rock because my crew and my support system rocks! I rock because that’s all I know how to do!
